4 Unconventional Uses For A Home Projector
With technology getting smaller, more portable and more affordable, more and more gadgets that we used to only see in offices make their way into our homes. Projectors are a good example of that. Only a few years back we would mostly spot one in a conference room or a university classroom, but these days we can have one at home, car or even carry a mini version in our pockets.
Projectors have lots of practical uses in both home and office environments: from watching a movie to giving a presentation – they give a larger scale to pictures and ideas and a more entertaining way to present them. But if we reach a bit deeper into our creative pool, we may just find that projector can have a number of less traditional uses, which are by no means less fun.

You can snap a picture of the board and project it in any size you want on the floor or wall. A new way to look at an old and familiar game can also spark more excitement among those, who would rather be playing video games.
